“Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”
Excerpt from “The Spirit Filled Believer’s” Daily Devotional
“The word thing in the original Hebrew is omer (o’–mer) and is similar to the Greek word rhema. The promises, the sayings, the word, the utterance, and the confessed word and included in omer.
‘You will also declare the Word of God, the promises of God, the sayings of God, and these things will happen.’ This implies more than just cheerful optimism, wishful thinking, or positive affirmation. When we speak forth the Word of God, we are not just blowing smoke, filling the air with clever rhetoric, or mouthing platitudes. We are declaring with our lips what God has spoken to our hearts. The power is not in our speaking; it’s in the Lord Who gives the message.
When we’re in distress, people can tell us, ‘Don’t give up; hand in there. Remember it’s always darkest before the dawn.’ And all that may be true and some comfort. But it really does more for us to hear the Lord say to us personally, ‘…not a hair of your head shall be lost (Luke 21:18 NKJ). All the cute aphorisms and clever slogans in the world are anemic compared with a solid word from the Lord.
This word declare (or decree) means ‘to decide, predetermine, and declare the outcome of a matter before it comes to pass.’ If your declaration is in line with the word you have received from God, you can ‘declare a thing, and it will be established for you!’ Weak or timid faith is too cautious to make any kind of pronouncement before it sees the outcome, but strong faith says, ‘It shall be done just as the Lord has said!”
To live a life in God’s presence, and then through that relationship with Him, to begin receiving revelation… is a powerful thing.
~Romans 10:17 “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the WORD of God.”
However to understand the power of coming into agreement with what He says about you, is an entirely different level of supernatural experience.
The enemy would like nothing more, than for us to never really comprehend the power we have as heir’s to the Throne.
I challenge you to come into agreement with what the Lord says about you, and watch everything change…
Stop speaking negative, and start speaking life!
“Your words are gate-openers. When you speak, you either open a gate of praise for God to walk through, or you open a gate of hell for the enemy to walk through. ‘Gate opening’ ISN’T OPTIONAL. The only question is, ‘Which gate will your words open?’
….If your mouth speaks things contrary to the Word (of God) you open the gate for the devil to come on the scene—death, disease, destruction, defeat, discouragement and depression follow him.”
~Pastor Robert Morris; “The Power of Your Words”
